As a fan of Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, it's been a pleasant surprise to see another film based on that world and character come to fruition. I wasn't holding out for another videogame, however. While this is one of the rare licensed properties I actually want to see get continued support, a third game seemed unlikely at best.
There's no stopping Vin Diesel when it comes to the Riddick IP, it seems. Speaking to ScreenCrush, he dropped the news that "We just over the past couple of months -- just this year -- we assembled that team from Starbreeze that brought Escape from Butcher Bay to create the third game." So there's something to look forward to. The time is right.
